Little Lambkins - 1940
The 31st in Fleischer Studios' Color Classics cartoon series.
Producer Fleischer StudiosAudio/Visual sound, color
This one is a little weird -- Littke Lambkins is a toddler who lives in the country and enjoys hanging out with his animal pals. When his parents decide to move into more modern digs in town, Lambkins sabotages the electric washer + wringer, ironing robots, and other conveniences, resulting in property damage and potentially fatal situations for his parents. They become disillusioned with the new house, move back into the old one, and Lambkins lives happily ever after. I don't know what the Fleischers were thinking when they came up with this plot!

Dem's sure good watermelon!
Slightly odd, but not the oddest cartoon about a little boy who can think of nothing better to do then to play around with his animal friends and eat watermelon (Ok, this IS odd lol). Parents move him into bigger surroundings. Kid gets revenge on his parents by fucking around with their appliances. They move back, animals and kid are reunited. MORE WATERMELON! lol
